JOHANNESBURG - A man has been killed and another wounded in a suspected vigilante attack in Khayelitsha.

It's believed the pair was part of a group assaulted by a Kuyasa resident following a robbery in the early hours of this morning.

This is the second such incident in the city this week.

On Monday, a man was killed and another injured after being attacked by a mob along a Potsdam Road in Table View.

The police's Andre Traut says, "The circumstances around the death of a man in his 20s are being investigated by police, as well as attempted murder on another man, also in his 20s, at Kuyasa in Khayelitsha this morning. We have reason to believe the two were beaten by community members. No one has been arrested yet."
